This novel approach seamlessly integrates equipment data, control and analytics into plant-level and enterprise networks and all tags are visible and available through Studio 5000.
New HI 6500-XP Extreme Weight Processor
The new HI 6500-XP Extreme Weight Processor is an EtherNet/IP® enabled weight processor that can process and output 300 updates per second of processed (stable) weight.
New Bench Scales
Hardy Bench Scales offer the ultimate in product configurability and customization for use in all industrial weighing applications, offering customers the ability to choose the right product at a price that fits their budget. Hardy Bench Scales are available in either stainless or carbon steel base construction, with 304 Stainless Steel platters. Choose between hermetically sealed, IP68/69K, C2 load cells and environmentally sealed, IP67 load cells, depending on your application.
Hardy Floor Scales
Hardy Process Solutions now has a new line of wash down floor scales at very competitive prices. These floor scales combine best-in-class durability with Hardy’s core features: weightless calibration (C2®) and operator diagnostics (INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN®). Hardy Floor Scales offer manufacturers multiple ways to reduce their maintenance costs and downtime.
Hardy Industrial Weighing System Delivers Up To 30 Channels of Stable Processed Weight To PACs Over a Single Fieldbus Connection
Hardy Process Solutions announces the new HI 6600 series of EtherNet/IP® enabled modular weight processing systems with a Rockwell EDS_AOP.
Unique system architecture and modular design allows OEMs and System Integrators to configure between 1 and 30 channels of stable, processed weight over a single fieldbus connection – providing the lowest cost per channel of weight into a PLC, greatly simplifying wiring and network addressing, all in an ultra-compact power efficient design.
Weight processors are used as front ends to control systems or standalone for all types of general weighing applications. Operating blind or with an optional display, they measure, condition and communicate weight without any need to control. The new HI 6600 series is designed to support process weighing applications such as inventory management, blending, filling and checking; and is especially well suited for batching systems, multi-head fillers and tank farms.
